    #WearingHisCloset Campaign by Nykita Veone

    #WearingHisCloset Campaign by Nykita Veone

    Nykita Veone is a Fashion Model living in NYC. She recently launched a new campaign/editorial on her website called WEARING HIS CLOSET, which portrays her wearing articles of clothing left by men she has been impacted by as a trans woman in a cis dominated world. Her stories are personal, raw and shed light on an issue that has far to long been swept aside. Nyki is using her platform to explain how easy it would be for trans people to be more accepted into main stream society if more of the men who dated them would actually stand up for them. Listen to the full interview to hear more of what Nyki has to say!

    Exploring Labels within the Queer Community with Queer Network creators Eddie and Justin

    Exploring Labels within the Queer Community with Queer Network creators Eddie and Justin

    Eddie and Justin talk about Queer Labels. The Queer Network sees Queer as umbrella term used to include everyone within the LGBTQ community as well as honouring it's original definition of people who are different, strange, and even weird.

    Queer is for everyone. It is openness, unconditional love, freedom, acceptance, pride in who you are, standing up for equality, and belief that love is love is love is love.

    The queer community thrives because of it’s diversity, and because of this we thought it could be helpful to talk about some of the old and new labels we are using in the 21st century to accurately express ourselves.

    It’s a list that continues to evolve because we are constantly working towards using language that people agree upon, enjoy using, and that they feel represents them. This video is our first attempt at uncovering and understanding the diversity of the labels used within the queer community.
